HAPPY BIRTHDAY BERNARDINE!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BERNARDINE DOHRN!! January 12, 1942
Jane Addams, socialist, feminist, lesbian, pacifist, was the first American woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize, shortly after J. Edgar Hoover, the G-man whose PR skills, political opportunism, and instinct for personal survival outstripped any of his alleged crime-fighting abilities, had called her “the most dangerous woman in America.” Fifty years later, still at the helm of the vast criminal enterprise he’d created, J. Edgar Hoover bestowed that same honor on my partner Bernardine Dohrn—the most dangerous woman in America.
The only time Hoover and I ever agreed!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, sweet, brilliant, brave companera!
